A Showcase for Fashion-Forward Modest Clothing
Christian Fashion Week exists to create a series of international fashion shows and events around the idea of fashion from a Christian worldview, reflecting common values such as modesty, boldness, and integrity. While we acknowledge that these values are not exclusively Christian, our faith is a unifying factor for the these ideals, and a viable marketplace for fashion designers who believe in them.

The Birth of Christian Fashion Week
Whenever we talk about Christian Fashion Week, we are always asked about where the idea came from and what inspired us to create this event. For those who are interested, here’s the story about how the CFW movement was birthed.
It was the evening of May 27th, 2010. Jose was working on business ideas, having just had a serious argument with a local fashion week about whether or not his efforts were a help to their organization. He was really passionate about their cause, but just couldn’t find a way to break through their ways of doing business, which excluded many people who wanted to help. He thought, “if I was running the show…”
Then it hit him. He wanted to put on a fashion week. It was a busy time for Jose, but he knew that he could make it happen. He had been photographing fashion and runway for years by that time, and combined with Mayra’s Model4Jesus ministry, he knew we could pull it off in the future – a Christian fashion week. Jose rushed to search for the perfect domain, ChristianFashionWeek.Com. It was available. He registered it, sat back, and happily finished my day dreaming about the distant future when he and Mayra would have the time to undertake such an aggressive and important venture. The next day, he shared it with Mayra and left her to dream with him. Click to read more
